High quality, metal model of the F16C Fighting Falcon USAF - US Air Force, ANG - 115th Fighter Wing - 70th Anniversary Edition with plastic parts in 1:72 scale.
The F-16, designed by General Dynamics as a light daily USAF air combat fighter, first took off on January 20, 1974. This single-engine supersonic aircraft has evolved over the years into a multi-purpose machine. It has a frameless canopy, which gives the pilot excellent visibility, and uses advanced aerodynamics. The F-16 was one of the first designs to use a loose static stability / fly-by-wire system to help it pull 9 g maneuvers and reach speeds in excess of Mach 2. Pilots call it the "Viper." The F-16 is considered one of the Cold War's most successful aircraft designs, and since 1976, more than 4,400 aircraft have been built.
